I will appear on Sunday as a guest on CBS Face The Nation with moderator Margaret Brennan . While I have done the show previously, this appearance holds special meaning because it will be the final Sunday for the show at its old location at 2020 M St. N.W. CBS has been moving into its new building next door and then this long-standing CBS bureau will be torn down. Despite being my birthday, I wanted to see the old girl one last time on M St. Update: It turns out that a second former student, Kelly Anne Conway, was also on Face the Nation, making this a thoroughly GW saturated line up. Here is the clip: Face the Nation. Conway was in my class in the first year of my teaching at GW and was always a standout in her class — as was Michael Avenatti in his class.
Also appearing on Face The Nation will be my former research assistant Michael Avenatti, counsel to Stormy Daniels. It is a point of tremendous pride to appear on a Sunday show with a former student who has done so well in his career. Recently, Avenatti and Conway, appeared at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
I was previously under contract with CBS News during the Dan Rather period. I had tremendous respect for Rather.
The old building was never a looker or particularly comfortable. However, it had a lot of history for one of the greatest news organizations in history. The deal with Tishman Speyer was ten years in the making and will give CBS a stellar new facility. I am particularly glad to be on the final show in the old building. We both have aged, not necessarily gracefully but well.
